Do You Want to Improve Your Test-Taking Skills?

November 11, 2018
By Victoria Caron

Cheverus will offer a two-part workshop -- Taking Tests with Confidence -- during Community Periods on Wednesday, November 28, and Wednesday, December 5.

Our presenter, Eric Johnson, M.S., has been a test prep tutor for more than 18 years and had a private counseling practice working with teens and adults. He worked for a national test preparation company for three years before founding his own business. Eric is more than a test prep coach: he understands the psychology of test-taking and knows how to help people with very different learning styles. He knows how to help students overcome test anxiety and other challenges that can act as roadblocks to success.

Space is limited and priority is given to students in grades 9-11. If you are interested in attending, click here to submit this form no later than Wed., Nov. 14.  You be notified of your workshop enrollment by Friday, Nov. 16.

Get Ahead with Summer Courses -- Register Online

April 08, 2018
By Jane Glass


Loyola Scholars offers summer programs for enrichment, immersion experiences, and classes for academic credit for incoming and current Cheverus students.

Click here to register.

Summer Classes


Introduction to Coding **

July 2-13*, M-F, 8:00-11:00 a.m.,  ½ credit, Grades 9-12 -- $300

Learn the basics of how computer programs work -- even if you’ve never done any programming before! Students in this hands-on course will use online coding tools like MIT’s Scratch to learn programming concepts in an interactive environment. Students will learn the fundamentals of computer science via Python programming language, including variables, user input, control structures, functions with parameters and return values, and basic graphics. Students explore sample programs, solve problems, and complete challenging projects. 

Pottery **

July 2-13*, M-F, 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m.,  ½ credit, Grades 9-12 -- $300 plus $50 lab fee

Exploring functional and sculptural aspects of ceramics, students will work with mid-fire range clay bodies using primarily hand building techniques with an introduction to wheel throwing. Hand building skills include pinch, coil and slab pot making. Students will be exposed to elementary wheel throwing techniques such centering, throwing, trimming. Dip glazing and various subtractive decorative surface techniques for finishing work will end the session. There is an additional art lab fee of $50.

Writing the College Application Essay

August 13-16, M-Th, Rising Seniors (Class of 2019) -- $200
Session 1: 9:00 - 11:00 a.m. (limit 12 students)
Session 2: 12:30-2:30 p.m. (limit 12 students)

This four-day course allows rising seniors the opportunity to take the time to formulate and reflect upon one of the most significant pieces of writing they will produce as a high school student. What better time to formulate an essay without the pressure of an early action or early decision deadline looming. Your transcript and resume provide college admissions officers with all of your stats -- GPA, classes, clubs, awards, etc. -- but how do they find out about you? This workshop will assist you in writing an essay which reflects your own unique story.  We'll work on mechanics (grammar, sentence structure, proofreading!) but focus on the content of what you have to say.  Write an essay that makes a lasting impression -- of you!

* no class on July 4
** Qualifies for Academic Credit at Cheverus

Summer Enrichment for Class of 2022

High School Preparation

All the faculty members of the enrichment program are teachers at Cheverus High School during the academic year. This program is geared to give a two-week orientation of what is to be expected of our incoming freshmen with the core classes of Reading, Writing, and Math. Cheverus teachers will focus on executive function, study skills and academic foundation skills that will allow you to hit the ground running on day one! In math, you will be prepared for your enrollment in Geometry or Algebra. In English, you will focus on developing writing skills and reading for content.

Summer Enrichment Highlights

Daily Academic Classes:

  • Critical Reading with Mr.  Dalvet (English Department at Cheverus)
  • Writing with Ms. Mahar (English Department at Cheverus)
  • Mathematics with Ms. Little (Math Department at Cheverus)
